Folding Rabbit Runs

If you've watched wild rabbits dashing about, you'll know that rabbits are designed to run at quite a speed, relative to their little legs! To stay happy and healthy, your pet rabbit needs regular opportunities to stretch their legs and exhibit their natural behaviours. If you can't offer them a large, permanent and safe space to run around in, folding rabbit runs are the answer.

What is a folding rabbit run?

Put simply, folding rabbit runs are large, usually lightweight, rabbit runs, designed to be easily erected and collapsed, so that they can be used for a while then folded up and stored neatly away.

There are 5 foot, 6 foot and even 8 foot enclosures to give your bunny plenty of room to stretch his legs and explore. Some have a carry handle, too, that makes them easy to transport.

A large folding rabbit run is the ideal way to provide space for rabbits to hop about, explore and get the exercise they need for good health, either by themselves or with their bunny buddies - without having to permanently allocate a big part of your garden or construct a large, permanent run for them. Most folding runs have one or more side access doors or roof panels to make it easy to get your fluffy friend in and out!

Choosing the Right Folding Rabbit Run

These rabbit enclosures can be pricey, but before you choose a cheap version, consider your long-term investment and the safety and comfort of your rabbit. You want a rabbit run that's well-made, with a sturdy wooden frame and thick metal wire panels, ensuring your rabbit can't escape from, or damage, the run. A cheap folding rabbit run may need replacing after a year or two, so it could cost you more in the long run.

The size of run you need will depend on how many rabbits you have and their size. If your rabbit is a giant breed, for instance a Flemish Giant or a Chinchilla Rabbit, then they will need an extra large folding rabbit run! You also need to think about the storage space you have available, and whether the run is for indoor or outdoor use.

There are plenty of brands available, such as PawHut, MaxxPet, The Hutch Company, Bunny Business and VivaPet. To narrow down your choices, look at rabbit run reviews to discover what other rabbit owners have to say about the practicality and quality of their folding runs over the long term.
